It was thought that he would require surgery after picking up the problem back in February but in the end it turned out he was able to cure the problem with core strengthening exercises and now the 25-year-old hopes his injury worries are over for good.
He told the Express and Star: "It's nice to have found out the cause of all the problems - lots of niggles were probably related to the back problem at the end of February.
"It's made me stronger as a person and I feel I've grown up a lot in the last six months, both on and off the pitch. I found out a lot about myself because it's very mentally draining.
"A lot of the time when you're injured you can still do weight programmes but, for three or four months, I was at home and putting on weight.
"I was doing core exercises every day and, looking back at videos of me from a year ago, it's a million miles different in terms of how much stronger I am in that region."
